Asian Appetizers

At our last ladies poker night, the only thing I left with was a few extra calories from these fabulous vegetable wontons. Here's how they were made. (For best results - prepare the filling and sauce and chill overnight.)


1/2 green cabbage finely shredded
1/3 cup carrots, finely shredded
3 minced green onions
1 bunch of cilantro chopped
3 minced garlic cloves
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 TBS soy sauce
1 TBS sesame oil
25 Wonton Wrappers (once filled with a tsp. of filling, wet the edges of the wontons 4 sides, fold into a triangle, then pinch the corners together) Fry in vegetable oil until golden brown.

SAUCE INGREDIENTS (whisk all ingredients together and chill overnight)
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup Soy Sauce
1/3 cup water
2 TBS sesame oil
1 tsp red pepper (or chili oil)

This is a perfect appetizer to make with the CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD we served at the spa party since many of the ingredients are the same. For dessert, we made our own fortune cookies with poker predictions, such as YOU WILL NOT BE SO LUCKY TONIGHT.
